Our immune systems hold the power—the power, that is, to treat cancer. Composed of various types of cells, tissues, and organs, the immune system serves as more than the body’s main defense against foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. (more…)
Cancer development requires genetic changes in several different oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Mutated cells occur with any change in the DNA sequence of a cell. Therefore, mistakes may cause mutations during cell division, or they may be caused by exposure to DNA-damaging agents in the environment. Thus, cancer is a disease of many cellular mutations.

Cancer Tumor Angiogenesis and Blood Vessels
Tumors arise from a small population of cancer stem cells (CSCs) or tumor-instating cells. Cancer cells can rapidly reshape, destroy or integrate into existing blood vessels. Tumor angiogenesis and blood vessels create a blood supply to the cancer tumor also causing spread, or metastasize, to new tissues through the blood. (more…)
Healthy normal cells have a structure determined by their DNA so do cancer cells CTC. They need energy to exist and live, which they derive from chemicals in the food you consume. All cells need a system to deliver nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals to them.
